Intense ruby red with a soft and pleasant palate
The grapes were hand-harvested in the middle of April. In order to extract colour and aromas the must has skin contact at low temperatures prior to alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging between 26C to 28C for a seven days. The wine is then left to macerate for five additional days in order to extract tannins. Ageing takes place in oak barrels for eight months to keep the balance between fruit and oak, before bottling without filtering to maintain its extraordinary qualities.
The grapes come from our vineyards located in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago, in Maule Valley. This place has a Mediterranean-like climate, where the winter rains are normal and the summers are dry, with marked range of temperatures between day and night. This allows the grapes to get excellent aromas and flavour concentration. Soils are a combination of sand and volcanic ash and the flat terrain receives superb sunlight exposition.
Our Syrah Reserva has an intense red ruby colour with some violet/blue rims. It is a fine example of a complex wine with aromas and flavours or red ripe fruit, black olives and some oaky notes. Its tannins are mellow and soft with a pleasant and silky aftertaste. A great match to pasta, lightly spiced red meats, and soft cheeses.
